" Gammer Gurtons Needle " The Abbot Dramatic Society pro- duced two novel plays — the famous " Gammer Gurton ' s Needle, " starring Virginia Gourley as Gammer, and " They ' re None of them Perfect, " starring the whole society. No one will ever forget Jeanne standing on one leg, swaying dangerously, and talking on and on. The fist fight be- tween Gammer and her neighbor, played by Sally Zimmermann, was likewise memorable. The A.D.S. chap- el " Jepthah ' s Daughter, " which was based on an Old Testament story, was one of the most moving produc- tions which Mrs. Gray has ever directed, despite the fact that it was played without costume. Special men- tion should be made of the perform- Jeanie intent on evil! [53]

Gargoyle: England, M. Stevens Griffin: Snider, Taylor Griffins, in spite of their initial set- backs, quietly remembered that the year was only one-third over, and that much could happen in the six months still remaining. Members of the athletic council were hostesses at the tea which followed the Field Day events, and in the midst of many reciprocal serenades and team songs awards were presented by Miss Hear- say after dinner in Davis Hall. And while the fall program was pro- gressing, work on the new wing and the Library was quietly (?) and slow- ly, but surely proceeding. Before the underclassmen knew what was hap- pening twenty-four Seniors had de- scended from the fourth floor and were comfortably settled in their spacious and attractive new rooms, with pink tiled bathrooms included! And from then on there were two stairways to the dining-room instead of one, and the faculty began finding it hard to get to meals on time ! The Library was the last of the new wing to be completed. The second week in December, under Miss Snow ' s careful direction, the books were moved to their spacious new home with a loss to the students of only two periods of study time. Gargoyle: Clark, Estin Griffin: A. Garratt, Replogle [52]

ance of Betty Jean England, who played the title role. Other chapel programs were pre- sented by C our ant, Aeolian and Philo- matheia. Courant discussed " The Psy- chological Effect of Radio in Modern Warfare " which sounded alarming but which turned out to be highly illuminating. Philomatheia presented ' The Place of Science in Defense, " from the point of view of conserva- tion, nutrition, search, invention, etc. which proved to be full of valuable information. Aeolian gave a Christ- mas program of various Yuletide customs in different countries, and of ' ' They ' re None of Them Perfect " A.D.S.: Menschik, Rathone, Pettengill, Caldarone, Ziinmermann, Gorsuch, England (Gourley, Hill, Bowersox) carols played by the members on hand bells.
